In Or Out - It's Time To Choose

Puerto Rico Anti-Military Recruiting Campaign Ignites Independence Movement

As the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan drag on — and the body count of Puerto Rican soldiers grows — an anti-recruiting campaign has emerged in this U.S. territory of 4 million people. High-schools have now become a battleground for recruiters and pacifists, who have equal access to the campuses and seek to sway island youth into joining or shunning the military. [...]

The anti-recruitment drive has energized Puerto Rico's pro-independence movement, though only a small minority have voted for independence in nonbinding referendums. A larger minority wants Puerto Rico to become a U.S. state and most prefer the island keep its loose affiliation with the U.S.
You know it is about time they made up their freaking minds isn't it? Screw this "commonwealth" crap. It's time to vote with two choices 1) Statehood or 2) Independence. In or out. Decide now.
